MRCS Part 1

If is your intention to stay in the UK you will need to make yourself competitive with UK trainees. The UK training pathway will show you the prerequisites, duration, examination and completion qualification at each stage.

If you wish to do your basic surgical training in the UK in order to obtain the CCBST, you will need to apply for approved training posts.

It is important to note that you must meet the entry requirements for Type 1 higher surgical training as set out in the 'Manual of Higher Surgical Training' regardless of GMC or immigration status.

As of November 2004 you will require a CCBST to be eligible for Type 1 training. To acquire a CCBST, trainees will need to have passed the MRCS examination. The surgical royal colleges do not recognise any overseas qualification as being equivalent to the MRCS. In 2004 we will be assessing whether training undertaken overseas demonstrates an equivalent level of knowledge, skills and experience to training inspected and approved for CCBST purposes.

If you have specialist medical qualifications awarded outside the UK then you may be eligible to apply for entry in the GMC’s Specialist Register. Being listed on the Specialist Register is a legal prerequisite for appointment to a substantive, honorary or fixed term consultant post in the UK.

The Joint Committee on Higher Surgical Training (JCHST) acts as the agent of the Specialist Training Authority on behalf of the UK surgical royal colleges when carrying out these assessments.

Doctors wishing to enter the UK to practice medicine should seek advice on immigration issues from The Home Office.

You are legally required to be registered with the General Medical Council to take up any NHS appointment with clinical duties including training posts. It is your responsibility to identify the proper type and route of GMC registration. You should note that GMC registration does not guarantee employment in the NHS.

The National Advice Centre for Postgraduate Medical Education is an information and advice centre for overseas-qualified doctors who wish to undertake medical training in the UK. We suggest that you see the NACPME website for a comprehensive overview of medical training in the UK.
